Kind of a silly question.
Since the turn of the century, only four players fit your age/draft position criteria (Winker, Mesoraco, Bruce, David Espinosa). Of those four, only two played at Billings (Winker, Bruce) and only one played at Billings and subsequently advanced to the majors (Bruce). It's kind of hard to draw any meaningful comparisons when you put such an extreme limitation on your data.
